Gestational Weight Gain in Twin Pregnancies Modelled as a Function of Gestational Age and Pre-Pregnancy BMI

Some researchers have examined the consequences of the Institute of Medicine (IOM) recommended guidelines for twin pregnancies in different pre-pregnancy BMI groups. There is not yet agreement regarding of what an optimal range of weight gain is recommended for twin pregnancies. The gestational weight gain (GWG) recommendations aim to optimize outcomes for the woman and the infant thus it is important to understand and further investigate the optimal range of weight gain for twin gestations. The aim of this retrospective study is to find an optimal threshold for maternal weight gain, by maternal pre-gravid BMI status, associated with optimal fetal growth and birth weights. This retrospective chart review study includes all women at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre who gave birth between 2000 and 2014.
